From: Chen Qi <Qi.Chen@windriver.com>

We should provide the user more information if a preconfigured tap
is used. This is because the user might have manually set up the tap
interface to be used by other qemu binaries.

So at a minimum, we should let the user know how to make runqemu skip
that tap interface.
